I believe the way people live can be directed a little by architecture. -Tadao Ando

real estate, architecture and art: we can justify value but the true worth speaks to each person differently.

we collaborate

Our agents
+ your team

We work together.  We know real estate and we live architecture.  architecture 8’s philosophy of “live architecture” embodies more than just recognizing the aesthetic and functional value of a property.  To “live architecture” is to appreciate the unique elements and subtle details of each property and to allow the same to affect and influence one’s life. Get to know us.

Le Corbusier wrote: “You employ stone, wood, and concrete, and with these materials you build houses and places: that is construction… But suddenly you touch my heart, you do me good. I am happy and I say: This is beautiful. That is Architecture.”

we know real estate

of distinction

From the beach to downtown, our properties and sales showcase some of the finest residences of Los Angeles.  Neutra, Marmol Radziner, Paul Williams, Lorcan O'herlihy, Patrick Tighe – we’ve represented or collaborated with the leading firms and contemporaries of our time.  We don’t take that lightly.

The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.

giving back

We help
each other

When we give, we receive.  Whether it's donating a portion of our earnings at the close of each transaction or volunteering our time, we make every effort to play an active role in providing for our community.  At architecture 8, we don't see those that need help as separate; we are all in this together.
